Fix Spotify stuck in full screen (Ubuntu) installed from snap
Problem:
I experienced Spotify being stuck in full screen mode.
The title bar with minimize, maximize and close wasn't present and no keyboard shortcut I know about would exit full screen.
Solution
rm ~/snap/spotify/current/.config/spotify/prefs
Works both in 18.04.01 and 20.04.x

(Even though this didn't fix the problem for the author, it worked for me)

I removed everything in the file and just left the credentials. Works like a charm! Thanks
